In the summer of 1998, just days after her divorce was final, author Theresa James’ ex-husband, John, broke into her home and murdered their three children before killing himself. James didn’t share her story for almost 20 years. Now, as a means to inspire and encourage others, she offers insight into that life-altering event in her new memoir, “Healing Tears” (published by Balboa Press).

“Life is full of challenges and my hope is that others can find strength and inspiration in my story to help them learn to forgive and to love and support each other,” James explains.

The story begins with her meeting John in 1990, the joys and challenges of their life together, their separation and eventual divorce, and the early morning in July when her life was forever changed. Based on journal writings penned at the time, James tells how she survived “the nightmare that had suddenly become my life” and how she handled her challenging journey.

James’ is a story about how a mother lost everything important to her life – and the struggle to find meaning after catastrophic loss. With the support of her husband, Todd, James was able to forge a path toward healing and orchestrating a new beginning.
